MAWU star ts in 2018 by a group of women, -all of them dancers- lead by Aina Lanas, initiating with the idea of femininity as a creative force, through the amalgam of universal concepts related with the implication of women and mother earth and the beneficial aspects that this relationship lets out. They use goddess Mawu as a source of inspiration, that in Fon culture (West Africa) is the feminine part of creation, and among its qualities it is they find harmony and generosity.

As it was known in the matriarchy, the power of this goddess is not conceived as a threat to individuality but as an innate understanding of the laws of nature. It is the feminine source of the universe and symbolizes fertility, abundance and creative imagination.

 

The entire process of investigation and creation culminates in a chant to femininity, highlighting the sense of empowerment of women, as well as the sense of gender solidarity, cooperation, sorority and tolerance of the different manifestations of femininity.

Under the goddess's gaze, synchronised with her voice, the bodies of the six"daughters of Mawu" move, sensual and suggestive, through ancestral forces, of rituals that speak to us about the night, the moon and the water and their connection with the earth.

It is the combination of light and darkness, the force of creation and life.

 

Their bodies both come together and apart, comfort each other and support each other.

 

Their differences and similarities dance in unison with the heartbeat they share.
